The London Rental Standard has been created to help Londoners rent with confidence. If your landlord is accredited, it means they’re committed to meeting the Mayor’s new standard. If an accredited landlord or letting agent manages your home, it means they’re committed to giving you a good service and meeting all their legal obligations. This includes things like protecting your deposit and making sure your home’s been checked for gas safety. For letting agents, it also means they’ll have proper insurance to protect your deposit and rent money, and won’t charge you surprise fees.

While we welcome any initiative that brings more professionalism to the London rental market to benefit the burgeoning influx of Expats working for Global Corporations, we would have liked to have seen measures to discourage unreasonable charges to tenants made by rental agents who are already charging big fees as Landlords being the people they are really working for!
